Sometimes, we will wake up and smile and feel optimistic for the day ahead of us. Another day we would love nothing more than to stay in bed and do nothing. Not every day is going to be easy. There are going to be those days where we feel tired and drained and moody. There will also be those days where we feel excited, happy, motivated and ready for what the day is going to present us with.
I see life sometimes as an obstacle. Sometimes we feel ready enough to step over them high enough so that we do not fall or stumble. We feel as though nothing can bring us down. Sometimes there are times when the obstacles are just too high. We cant seem to get over it so feel like a failure. We struggle to deal with what life throws at us so feel as though everything is going wrong. It can be hard to keep up with the pressures of life. Some days, we are strong and organised and happy to ignore all the negativity in life so that we can focus purely on the positives that remain in our lives. Other days life drags us down and makes us feel as though we are drowning in negativity.
It can be hard to always be okay. There are going to be times when we feel low and grumpy and simply just want bed and chocolate. This is okay. If a university rejects you or a friend falls out with you, we just want the comfort of our bed or from someone we care about. Life can be rough. Life can be hard. If it is one of those days where you just feel as though you need a break, let yourself have it. Go and have a nice bath or go and get into bed. Life can wait until you are feeling more up to it. You are the priority and you are what matters.
I wake up sometimes and realise that all the things I am hiding from, such as English essays or coursework are still there. I admit that I have buried my head in the sand and ignored all the pressures that occurs in my life. It can be so hard to always hide from these. It may always be better to face up to these but in small bites. I try and organise it so that it is not so much stress at once. If you do feel like you are struggling, please try and speak to someone if things are getting on top of you. I know that things can get difficult, but there is ways to deal with it.
On the days where we feel positive, go and do all the things you want to do. Be productive. Be happy. Smile at someone to make them smile. Give someone a compliment. Do something that will make you feel even better about yourself. Don’t waste a good day.
If you are not feeling as good, allow yourself that time to take a break. Go and treat yourself. Talk to a friend if there is anything on your mind. Go to bed and have a nap or watch a funny film. Let yourself have that time and see how you feel tomorrow. If you feel as though you may want to do something to try and cheer you up, go for it! If you just need time, let yourself have it and wake up to a brand new day tomorrow.
We are important. We matter. We are a priority and deserve to feel good. Give ourselves five minutes out of our busy lives to just stop for a moment. Tomorrow is a new day after all.
Until next time,
